Man Killed By Aurora Police Last Night

The Denver Post is reporting that a man was killed by Undercover police in Aurora last night.  The article claims the man was armed and under surveillance for drug suspicions.  The killing occurred on the 1400 block of Macon Street.

9news is reporting that one single officer shot the victim.  That officer has been placed on paid Admin Leave pending the investigation.  This is a common practice in most law enforcement agencies, except for Denver PD and Denver Sheriff’s Department.   No names have yet been released.  According to 9news, “Police say the vice and narcotics officers followed the man to the location and were told over their radio that the man was armed. The man started approaching the officers, for an unknown reason, and that is when shots were fired, according to police.”  This reeks of suspicion.  Was the man actually approaching the officers with a gun in hand, or did he just happen to be armed?   We will post updates as the come in.  Our condolences go out to the family of the victim.
